Summary Approaching the neuromuscular system both as a control "organ" and as a system that can itself operate and function very efficiently in demanding sport activities, the book describes essential topics such as neuromuscular fatigue, neuromuscular training, and musculoskeletal loading, and describes in detail the specific research tools, invasive approaches and in-vivo techniques that are used to understand the true nature of tensile and ligament forces during intensive exercise. Additionally, special chapters cover two recently developed research methodologies---high speed ultrasonography (US) and transmagnetic electrical stimulation (TMES)---that can be applied during natural locomotion. --
With contributions from internationally renowned experts, this is an invaluable reference book for biomechanists, sports scientists and sports medicine specialists, as well as for advanced level coaches and sport physiotherapists. --Book Jacket
